Mission & Vision

Mt Shasta Nordic Ski Organization is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. Our mission is to support community health and wellbeing by providing groomed cross-country ski trails and programs for a diverse population on the slopes of majestic Mt Shasta.

Mt Shasta Nordic is a community-based non-profit organization that strives to inspire a passion for Nordic skiing by providing marked backcountry and groomed Nordic trails to a broad range of skiers in the Northern California/Southern Oregon region. Through the financial support from members, partners, and the community, we offer a full-service facility and programs for locals and visitors alike.


Mt Shasta Nordic was formed in early 2006 by members of the Mt Shasta area Nordic community who recognized that the Nordic skiing infrastructure Northern California could be preserved and enhanced by a community group passionate about cross-country skiing. With the intention of benefiting generations to come, we set our scope of influence to encompass those who have yet to discover the joys and benefits of Nordic skiing. Our intention is to create, enhance, and preserve Nordic skiing opportunities for all ages and abilities. By facilitating participation in education programs, competitive events, and Nordic skiing as a fun, health-beneficial, aerobic activity, we aim to enhance the legacy of Nordic Skiing in our community.
